Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the system to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help stop insect infestation issues.
